— AMD Pensando high-performance Distributed Services Card currently deployed at scale across hyperscalers, cloud service providers and enterprises —
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced that the AMD Pensando Distributed Services Card, powered by the industry’s most advanced data processing unit (DPU)1, will be one of the first DPU solutions to support VMware vSphere® 8 available from leading server vendors including Dell Technologies, HPE and Lenovo.
As data center applications grow in scale and sophistication, the resulting workloads increase the demand on infrastructure services as well as crucial CPU resources. VMware vSphere 8 aims to reimagine IT infrastructure as a composable architecture with a goal of offloading infrastructure workloads such as networking, storage, and security from the CPU by leveraging the new vSphere Distributed Services Engine, freeing up valuable CPU cycles to be used for business functions and revenue generating applications.
The fully programmable AMD Pensando DPU is at the core of this shift toward software-defined infrastructure. The VMware vSphere Distributed Services Engine and AMD Pensando DPUs can help customers reduce operational costs by unifying workload management, improving performance by freeing up CPU resources, and providing an added layer of security by isolating infrastructure services from server tenant workloads. Early customers of vSphere Distributed Services Engine, accelerated by AMD Pensando DPUs, include a leading financial services provider, a multi-cloud solutions hoster and a leading business applications company.
